History in Cambridge

No time like the present to study the past

Martin Luther King once said that we are not makers of history, but that we are made by history. So, it stands to reason that the key to understanding the present is to look backward. And you certainly couldn’t have chosen a better place than Cambridge for your history summer course. The city’s university alumni are as diverse as it is impressive. One of the most controversial figures in British political history, Oliver Cromwell studied at Cambridge. Heir to the British throne, Prince Charles, also studied history here – and was in fact the first Royal to get a degree.

From the decline of the Roman Empire to the cold war shenanigans that led our planet to the brink of self-destruction, the teaching methods on this course will engage you with the past in a way you never thought possible.

"The best part of my classes here would be the insight they’ve provided towards looking at history from different perspectives, and how important it is to properly gauge the usefulness of a source in your given essay."

"The academic support I had during my time in Oxford Summer Courses was incredible, and my tutor Professor James Harris was by far the best tutor I’ve ever had."
